University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering researchers have discovered a new way to make a diesel-like liquid fuel from carbohydrates commonly found in plants. Chemical and Biological Engineering graduate students detail a four-phase catalytic reactor in which corn and other biomass-derived carbohydrates…
Using high-tech engineering principles, an MIT/Harvard team has developed a low-tech solution to the problem of how to build homes in tsunami-prone areas. The team recently produced an architectural model for a Sri Lankan house that essentially would allow a powerful ocean wave…
The cameras and MP3 players are fun, but the next wave of add-ons for cell phones and laptops may help users keep track of their health. A University of Florida engineer has built a working prototype for a small, portable system that can monitor a person’s breathing and heart rate…
NASA has announced that a mission to fly to Jupiter will proceed to a preliminary design phase. The mission is called Juno, and it is the second in NASA's New Frontiers Program. The mission will conduct an in-depth study of the giant planet
